Downtown Detroit


COSMOPOLITAN. INDUSTRIOUS. SAFE. Up-and-coming restaurants, a do-it-yourself attitude, new hotels, scenic and social parks, public transit, bike lanes and a walkable international riverfront are redefining Detroit. Architecture from Albert Kahn and Isamu Noguchi lives next to all-night joints selling loaded Coney dogs and Prohibition-born speakeasies pouring locally crafted beer and cocktails. The city’s Greektown, Eastern Market, The District Detroit, Corktown and Midtown neighborhoods are booming with activity.

  • Corktown

    Detroit’s oldest neighborhood is an Irish-turned-hipster haven with lots of friendly pubs and dive bar hangouts. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
